Although he moved to the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant insisted he had nothing to do with the former Golden State Warriors.
On the morning of December 23, Brooklyn Nets will meet Golden State Warriors in the first match of the NBA 2020/21 season. This is also the first time Kevin Durant has encountered the old team since the summer of 2019, when he left the San Francisco Bay area to go to magnificent New York.
The departure of Durant left a lot of noise, rumors about the conflict between the 2-time Finals MVP star with his teammates. However, before the opening game of the new season, the 32-year-old decided to confirm that his feelings have not changed with the old team.
“I still keep in touch with my old teammates,” Durant told NBC Sports. “I did meet Draymond at a restaurant. Nice to meet him and his family. I talked to Steph a couple of times. It was great to see that everyone is fine and realize we have a strong bond even though we are. Wear any team jersey, anywhere”.
“From Livingston to Iguodala, McGee, Thompson, Curry, Jordan Bell, Omri Casspi, Nick Young, seeing those who have lifted the trophy with you, you always find a special connection. I am grateful for the time. Time in the Gulf and will always be a Warriors player at heart”.
Saying goodbye to Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016, Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors and helped this team win two consecutive 2017 and 2018 NBA Championships. At the Oracle Arena, he also won 2 Finals MVP titles.
On the morning of December 23, the new NBA season kicks off with the match between Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors at 7am. Then, at 10 o’clock was a match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers.
